Aapam / Rice crepe

Aapam / Rice crepe/ Rice pancake

  • Raw Rice (Pachai Arisi) ~ 11/2 cups
  • Par boiled rice (Pulungal Arisi) ~ 1/2 cup
  • Urud dal, Fenugreek seeds ~ 2 Tbsp. each
  • Coconut flakes ~ 4 Tbsp.
  • Salt ~ to taste
  • Baking soda ~ a pinch


  • Soak the rice, dal and fenugreek seeds for about 8 hours.
  • Grind these together with the coconut until it’s a smooth batter.
  • Mix in the salt, and let this ferment overnight.
  • Just before making the aapam add a pinch of baking soda to the batter and mix well.
  • To make the aapam, take some batter and pour it in a aapam pan (or any non-stick pan with a lid), swirl it until it coats the interior of the pan, cover and steam until done.


  • The aapam does not need to be cooked on both sides. Just cooking/steaming on one side is enough.
